Lovely Blue Floral

Hey, this makes 3 days in a row!!  Woo Hoo!  Are you sitting down, or did this knock you off your feet?  Don't expect this too often cuz it probably won't happen all that often.  But since you're here, let's get another card posted.  Ok?  Today's card features a blue and white theme with a touch of green added in.  These colors always have such a fresh feel and are very appealing.

Stamps:  Flower Shop and Express Yourself
Ink:  Island Indigo
Paper:  Whisper White, Garden Green, Island Indigo, and Pool Party cardstock with Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper
Accessories:   Big Shot with Beautifully Baroque TIEF, Little Leaves Sizzlit, Pansy Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Brights Candy Dot, AquaPainter,  2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, and Dimensionals

Isn't this pretty and fresh looking for spring?  I really do love this color combo.  And in case you can't tell, I really, really love the Flower Shop stamp set and punch combo.  It makes it so easy to do a card like this.  Just stamp, punch, and layer up.  Can't get too much easier than that!

I wanted to keep the cards somewhat white, so I did a little watercoloring to soften the look.  Of course, the flower centers needed the glitter to finish them off and add some sparkle.

The sentiment looked a little plain compared to the rest, so I punch one bitty flower in Pool Party and added it.  Then added the Turquoise Candy Dot to accent it.  (It's fun to use similar colors on the card, instead of everything matching perfectly)  The embossing on the white background gives the card even more texture besides all the flowers and leaves. 

This is one of my most favorite cards lately.  Especially when you've got gray skies outside and the weatherman is warning of freezing temps and more snow!   Yuck!!  Remind me again when spring is getting here?!  Hope you're having a great day and thanks for stopping in to see what's new. 
Happy stamping - Sharon
